Microsoft Cloud PC user interface leaked in advance
At the press conference at the end of last month, Microsoft focused on the Windows 11 system, but Microsoft did not mention relevant information about the upcoming cloud computer at the press conference.
Cloud computer is an enterprise-level product that Microsoft is developing. In simple terms, it is to create multiple virtual machines in the data center and then use the remote desktop for user operation.
This product is mainly for users who are pursuing higher security, roaming the desktop, or unwilling to upgrade their hardware. Some companies do have this demand.
For example, in terms of security, all cloud computers are maintained by Microsoft, including regular installation of updates, checking for viruses and malware, and providing high-strength verification.
In addition, some companies can provide employees with low-configuration equipment in order to reduce costs, and then connect to the data center to operate higher-configured cloud computers for office work.
It is interesting that most Microsoft products are connected through Microsoft remote desktop software, but the upcoming cloud computers seem to be able to connect through a browser.

The cloud computer promotional image obtained by the media in advance shows that the product can be connected and managed through a browser, and remote desktop software is not required for pairing.
This is a good feature for enterprise users because it can connect to the cloud computer through a browser on any device, anywhere, and anytime.
In addition, it needs to be emphasized that this product is only for enterprise-level users. Browser remote control is not a new technology, but this seems to be the first time Microsoft has used browser connection instead of remote desktop protocol on its own cloud desktop products.
